This is one of my favorite beaches in the area. Clean, beautiful, not usually too crowded (unless it’s a holiday), and if you walk a little bit down the shoreline, you get into more natural beachfront landscape. The city does an excellent job of caretaking!

Clean, sandy beach. Pavilion for changing with outdoor shower area. Concession stand, plenty of places to sit. Playground adjacent with nice dog run. Good place to spend some time relaxing for a couple hours.

The lake levels are high but the Lake Michigan beaches are still the best! We liked the Ludington beach a little better, but First Street was a great place to spend the day.

We spent an afternoon here, long enough to get sunburned! There is a nice Beach House, with a snack bar, showers, and locker/dressing rooms. An adjacent playground looks like it would be fun for kids. A walkway extends from the Beach House out to the...More
